Electric drum kit. Bought after the first month in lockdown.
And then the bar we built in the back garden over summer - as everyone else did!

Rowing Machine, Treadmill, Cross Trainer
Brilliant over the dark winter months - was thinking of selling them when lockdown ends but now considering keeping since we've got the room just so!

Oh and an additional Orbi Pro satellite to get cover to the last bit of the house that struggled a bit - cheap too on Marketplace

Oh I bought a Philips PerfectDraft to make up for not going to the pub as well, forgot that, I've turned it off for a month
I got one for 200 from beer hawk direct for Christmas. Drank 12 kegs (120 pints ) of Clwb Tropica IPA in 6 weeks because it was so easy 😲😲😲

Had to turn it off in the end. You can't get them for love nor money at the minute and they are going on ebay for over 300 quid second hand so I cashed in.

Obviously it's just a machine but it's so easy to get a really nice beer you need some serious self control

Tennis ball machine, I'd go mad hitting the treadmill or just going for a run every day.

So slightly annoying when the government decided to "close" all tennis courts as opposed to just saying you can't play tennis.

I've chosen to interpret it as tennis courts are closed for the playing of tennis. Whereas I am just going down and hitting balls alone, which is definitely not playing tennis as you need at least 2 people for that.

Pretty sure I'm complying with the spirit of the guidance/law if not the letter of it. No-one has said anything yet.
Nice, I was doing a similar thing and just hitting serves, until they locked all the gates to all the courts.

I know what you mean, Club Tropica is nice tipple, mine is off. I'll reward myself with a triple pack for the summer once I get myself back to 15 stone 9 for probably the first time in a decade

Luckily it's a small village club my nearest courts. They just stuck a note on the gate. Looking forward to playing real people though.

I'm trying to do the same now. I'm the worst I've ever been - went from playing squash and football twice a week as well as playing golf to nothing :poop::poop:

#MeToo. Exercise comes and goes depending on my contract, but when I'm up for it, I'm up for it. But the last 6 months were rubbish and after losing 2 stone, I put nearly a stone back on. But I'm running 3 times and weights 3 times every week now. Golf will open soon enough, I might go out 3 times a week too, while I'm between contracts.
 
Nintendo Switch - not had a game console for years but managed to keep my son and I entertained over the past year, especially in the winter months.
